Jetpilot was born in 1986 when it made a name for itself by creating the most technically advanced wetsuits, vests and apparel for the sport of personal watercraft racing.
The inspiration came from 4 Californians with a strong passion for Moto X and Watercraft. As Scott, Jeff, Eric and Phil got heavily into Watercraft they saw that no one was focusing on Rider apparel in this growing sport. Their MX background gave them the vision and design concepts that changed the industry. The Jetpilot brand name was chosen from the guys from their experience of racing Moto X at a Pro level in America and Europe. They were called Moto pilots if you rode Moto X bikes in Europe. They didn’t want to call the brand Jet Ski Pilot racing apparel as Jet Ski was a Kawasaki trademark name for their watercraft products, so the brand Jetpilot was the title of the new direction in watersports gear.
Jetpilot initially got involved in the wakeboard industry in 1995. It was a great crossover for Jetpilot wetsuits and clothing. As we got more involved, we began to see that the wakeboard market was still in its infancy and that there was room for improvements. Just as they have done for the past ten years in the personal watercraft industry, Jetpilot plans to be the company that makes changes to help the sport of wakeboarding reach its full potential. After 10 years Jetpilot has become one of the leading brands globally in this industry today.
Jetpilot stands alone in their commitment to design, durability and performance of all their products and with this attitude and love for the watersport industry, Jetpilot will continue to create products that we all can enjoy.
